    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    1984 Hurst Cutlass decals
    does any make decals to convert the Revell 83 Cutlass to an 84, they reversed the scheme in 84 so the kit decals are incorrect

    I originally thought my kit had a short shot dash, but the kit that was reviewed has the exact same hole in the dash next to the vent, right in the middle of the dash. Was this for something not included in the kit?

    YES!!!!!, I have no problem shelling out $70 on this one, interesting it appears to be a U.S. spec. Model. Not the Chinese version which has different front fenders and front bumper. 10th anniversary Rubicon makes it a 2013, but it hasn't changed much since then and is very similar to the 2017.

    Is it sad that I'm disappointed that's the aoshima Prius is 1/43 scale

    The Liberty Walk GTR is cool, but I'd rather see the new 2017 GTR. 
    The only thing that really interests me is the Volvo, and the 2002

    Picked up the rx7, straight reissue of the kit, includes all the racing parts, plus an excellent new decal sheet. Really happy too see this one back. Interesting thing is that this kit has pieces from all over the globe, tires and box made in Chine, decals from Italy, plastic parts molded and its all packaged in the USA.

    I would much rather see the mpc Camaro then the AMT version, I believe the AMT version was last reissued as a Michaels exclusive, the MPC version was last seen as an annual in 1992 in an AMT box

    Sorta long shot request
    A few months a ago I bought a Fujimi Nissan 180SX at a model show, didn't realize till I got home that it had the wrong glass in it, can anyone spare the clear tree from that kit,

    Deffinently looking forward to the Suburban. Wish they would've shown an actual pic of the f100, curious on how that one will look in scale. Mostly excited for the RX7. Gonna be nice to have that one molded in white.

    Kits out now, straight reissue, decal sheets a little updated and they put new tires in the kit, but no changes other then that. 
  12. gasman added a post in a topic AMT 2016 snap Camaro.   

    I just picked this kit up today, gonna be a quick project. 
    There is a slight mold line on the D pillers same spot on both sides. really happy too see plastic seats, not the vinyl seats we saw in the 2010 Camaro kit. 
    only issue I have is that the headlights are molded to the body. there is glass for the lenses. but all the headlight detail is molded to the body, It could be a PITA too paint, other then that it looks fantastic.

    I could care less about the fake blowers, the crime against humanity are the LS motors. 
  14. gasman added a post in a topic Round 2 September '16 Releases   

    A little disappointed the Nova will be molded in black, I'll still get one but I would've rather seen it molded in white
    The Cheverro is a must buy for me. I know it's a custom but It looks good, and the ugly rear spoiler is a superate part. 
    Ill be getting one of the Datsun Monster trucks, but just for parts so I can restore an original stock MPC Datsun pickup. 
  15. gasman added a post in a topic How About A Call Out For The Old Time Hobby Shops   

    Esthers Hobbys, been open since 1938. survived having 6 feet of water in it about 12 years ago. The area its in has been seeing a bit of a resurgence in the last decade. 

    Bill and Walt's is still around but they moved outside of town. they only have 1 location now. 
    The hobby shop in Cranberry is Hobby Express, they moved to a much, much better location up the road in a busy shopping center. This is my go too hobby shop.
